“Acne is so hush-hush and shamed in society, and having clear skin is the epitome of beauty, so if you dare have a zit or a breakout — and if you dare to take a picture of it — it’s almost like something’s wrong with you, which is so false,” she told Cosmopolitan.
“People think you have acne because you’re dirty, or you don’t wash your face, or you’re just generally unkempt,” she told Cosmopolitan. “But it’s about hormones, blood sugar, and genetics, more than anything else, and yet people look down upon it as if it’s something you’re not trying hard enough to fix, which is what I try to dispel in my Instagram.”
Moral of the story? Your acne is not your fault, nor is it anything to be ashamed of.
